ChristmasTaffy Apple Salad

This treat is great anytime of the year, but it is a nice lighter addition to your holiday dessert table which will balance nicely against all the heavy sweets. This is not necessarily a diet friendly recipe, but it is not so rich and heavy which has come as a welcome relief to our family as we have been bombarded with sweet things here lately!

*This needs to chill thoroughly for best flavor overnight in the fridge, however it is still good chilled for just a few hours if you're like me and can't wait!


1/2 cup sugar
1 T. cornstarch
2 T. lemon juice
1 egg
1 cup pineapple chunks (drain- save juice)
1 (8 oz.) Cool Whip (you can use the lite version- both are good)
2 med. red apples
2 med. green apples
2 cup mini marshmallows
1 1/2 cup salted peanuts

In pan, heat sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, egg and juice from pineapple until thick after boiling (about 5 minutes).
In Large bowl, combine all other ingredients. Toss lightly. Refrigerate overnight (or at least several hours).

Have a wonderful Christmas!


  1. Sounds like a unique recipe and as you said, a great counterpart to the more sugary, fatty sweets that tend to hang around the holiday dessert table. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!

  2. This does sound very good indeed.

    Wishing you the very best of the holiday season!

  3. It looks so good! I'll try it out for sure!
